A gigantic specimen of goldfish weighing over 30 kg caught in a small lake for sport fishing in France. The fish has been dubbed The Carrot, and was caught by British entrepreneur Andy Hackett who was at Bluewater Lakes in the Champagne-Ardenne region.
The man posed for the photos with the fish, and then set it free in his pond, where it is hoped it will never be captured again. The Carrot is believed to be a hybrid between a peculiar variety of common carp and a koi carp or Japanese carp, another ornamental variant normally found in ponds and ponds.
Jason Cowler, the manager of the sports pond, said: 'We entered The Carrot about 20 years ago as something different to fish for customers. It has grown since then, but doesn't come out often. It's very elusive, but the fish are in very good shape.
health and condition." Huge goldfish are causing in North America. Despite them, they are also among the most invasive and harmful species on the planet. Their impact on wildlife and ecosystems appears to be getting worse. North America is invaded by these fish, they can weigh over one kg for a good 40 cm in length, and they have invaded ponds, rivers and lakes.
Huge goldfish are causing in North America
Over the past 40 years, many cities in Canada and the United States have built more and more ponds, ponds and pools to facilitate the runoff of rainwater and to contain floods.
These artificial bodies of water have been overrun by goldfish which are very resistant to extreme conditions. Just outside Toronto, over 20,000 have been counted in a single pond. Theirs is an extremely harmful presence for all ecosystems other than those of origin.
According to experts, populations in North American ponds, pools and the Great Lakes have grown significantly in the last decade. Goldfish become huge, reproduce quickly and start eating insects, other fish, tadpoles and even adult amphibians, destroying ecosystems. Scientists predict that due to climate change these fish will proliferate more and more.
